FBI File: Mae Mallory, radical activist

PDF: Mae Mallory’s FBI file (1,256 pages / 123 megs)

 

Largely overlooked now, Mae Mallory (1927-2007) was a proponent of black separatism, self-determination, and armed self-defense. Among other things, she was a Freedom Rider and the lead plaintiff in an important school segregation case. She did time on sketchy charges, and her conviction was overturned. You can read about her here and here.

I received her 1,250-page FBI file via a FOIA request. It had been released in 2009 but apparently was never posted online. It arrived as eight PDFs, which I’ve combined into one large file (above).
